j1

Bessel function of order one.

SYNOPSIS:

double x, y, j1();
y = j1(x);

DESCRIPTION:

Returns a Bessel function of order one of the argument.
The domain is divided into the intervals [0, 8] and (8, infinity). In the first interval a 24 term Chebyshev expansion is used. In the second, the asymptotic trigonometric representation is employed, using two rational functions of degree 5/5.
